Introducing Bare Kind’s bamboo socks, a cosy, cute and conscious addition to your sock drawer.
10% of profits from these socks go to wildlife charities matched up with the animal prints on them. So the bumblebee socks raise money for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust while the turtle socks raise money for the Turtle Foundation.
The socks are made at a family-run factory in Istanbul, where ethical and sustainable standards are tip-top. Dyes are non-toxic, socks are shipped by lorry rather than plane where possible, factory workers must be 18 or over – practices like this are the norm there.
These values are taken further by Bare Kind, who are working on a project to offset all their past emissions and use recyclable packaging.
The Bare Kind range includes more than the bamboo socks too. Pick from waste-saving, planet-friendly items such as reusable metal straws and 100% recycled t-shirts and tote bags made from plastic bottles.
Animal lover Lucy Jeffrey swapped a career in banking for life as a social entrepreneur. She founded Bare Kind in 2018, taking it from a side project to a full-time business when she left her old job in 2020.
Lucy had one mission in mind when she started out: to create products that also add value to the world. That’s why every item in the range is useful, consciously made, high quality and designed to last as long as possible.
Fun fact: Lucy’s first word was socks. Who knew she’d be changing the world with them years later?
